January is a great time of year to get some of your yearly planning accomplished. The holidays are over and there should be plenty of time to get some ideas together for the new year.
This year I had the idea to do an easy and fun birthday gift that I plan to have stockpiled and ready to give at a moment's notice.
I came up with this fun soap and towel combo! We all know we could use some extra soap and an extra towel laying around to help keep our hands clean and ourselves healthy. The towel gift wrapper is a fun and beautiful way to combine a card and the gift wrap all in one as well. Let’s get to work and create this fun birthday gift idea!
To create this fun gift wrapper, you will need:
- Cardstock Warehouse Cardstock Papers
- Colorplan Cardstock in Smoke
- Colorplan Cardstock in Mid-Green
- Colorplan Cardstock in Imperial Blue
- Pop-Tone Cardstock in Pink Lemonade
- Diamond Print Inkjet Glitter in White
- Cricut Maker, or Explore
- Adhesive Foam Dots
- Hand Towel
- Enamel Dot Embellishment Stickers
To begin, cut all of your pieces on your cutting machine.

Birthday Gift Cardstock Wrapper
After cutting out all of your paper pieces, start the assembly process by attaching the Diamond White cardstock piece to the large Smoke cardstock piece using glue. Set aside.
Attach the Imperial Blue “Happy Birthday” cutout to the Diamond White frame cutout using adhesive foam dots.
Glue the greenery between the two layers of cardstock that make the “Happy Birthday” sentiment sign. Set aside.
Create the flowers using a dot of glue and layering two of the layers of petals together. After the glue dries, gently curl up the top layer of petals to give the flowers dimension.
Embellish the centers of the flowers using enamel dots. Attach the flowers to the “Happy Birthday” sign using glue and adhesive foam dots.
Fold the towel so there is a little “pocket” on the inside of the towel. Slide the soap bottle into the pocket you just made.
Wrap the cardstock strap around the towel and soap bottle and attach to the back of the towel using tape.
Attach the completed “Happy Birthday” sign to the front center of the cardstock strap using adhesive foam dots or glue.
Now stand back and admire your work!
Your birthday gift is now beautifully put together and ready to give away on a moment's notice!
